See Malinois currently waiting for Foster Homes!



These Rescues are currently available in the South Central portion of the country. If you are interested in adopting one of the Malinois profiled in these pages contact the foster home listed in the profile.


Many police officers/trainers/SAR groups approach Malinois rescue looking for young dogs to train. Most of our rescued dogs are not suitable for these types of jobs. Some of our rescued Malinois are actually dogs that have been rejected by police departments due to their inability to do the job. While we are not opposed to adopting dogs out as working dogs, we adopt only to individuals, never to organizations or police departments. Most of our rescued Malinois have had difficult beginnings in life. The majority will make fantastic family pets, but most of them do not have the temperament needed to work day after day with a police officer or in search and rescue. All dogs adopted through Malinois rescue will be spayed or neutered prior to placement.

Malinois Foster Braum - 20KB

Braum is the perfect dog for someone who wants a companion dog and to cuddle with.

Braum is estimated to be around 1.5 years old, neutered, fully vetted, and heartworm negative. He was rescued from a tough life and has some scars to show for it. A difficult start hasn't once stopped this sweetheart from being the sweetest dog, and he continues to show us his true colors! He's a big boy who's close to 80lbs and is just as sweet, lovable, and playful as can be. He's great with the kids of all ages, but due to his size, it is recommended he is around kids older than 5. He loves all people and is very fond of his foster dad. Braum never learned how to play with toys, but this may change over time if he is encouraged and shown how much fun they can be. He's great on a leash and loves attention as a reward for a job well done. He's also housebroke and crate trained.

Braum needs a family that will continue his learning of basic commands and possibly channel his athletic abilities of being able to jump a 6' fence into something more productive, such as learning agility! Braum doesn't like cats or small dogs and may get along with another dog if properly introduced, but he would be content being an only dog.

For more information about Braum, please contact: Roxanne

Malinois Foster Britta - 30KB

Britta is a Loyal Companion Who Loves Dogs and Cats

Britta is estimated to be 2 years old and is spayed, heartworm negative (and on prevention), and up to date on her vaccinations. She is wonderful with other dogs and good with cats, but would be best in a home without small children. Britta was picked up as a stray, so her history is unknown and she has some fear (especially around men).

Britta is doing well in her foster home- where she lives with other dogs and cats. She is a very loyal dog and loves her 'foster mom' a lot, although she is still fearful of her 'foster dad'. She is food motivated and has been doing very well with her training. She now knows 'sit', 'down', 'stay', 'come', 'crawl', 'shake', and fetch. She has also adjusted well to her crate. Britta has displayed fearful behavior, especially with strangers, and has a tendency to be protective.

She is excellent in the car, and has been doing well with socialization outside of the home. Her protective/fearful tendencies are more enhanced while at home or when she is in her crate. We are working with her to improve these things, but for this reason we feel like her best home would have a quieter setting without children. She is an extremely loyal dog that would be happy with other dogs to play with.

He likes most people that he meets but occasionally takes an immediate dislike to some. Chaos has a very strong pushy personality and will need to be in a home with an experienced dog person and preferably experienced Malinois person.

His play can be over the top, mouthy and escalate if not controlled. He does well with female dogs and will get along with some males. NO little dogs, cats, chickens or children.

Chaos is 70-75 lbs and is not aware of his own size. He has a very strong food and toy drive. He would be excellent in a working home. Very intelligent and would do very well in obedience, agility, dock diving and such. Chaos loves water and his toys. He has been started in obedience training. He loves to ride in the car. He is house trained and crate trained.

He loves to be where ever his people are. He would love to be in a home with a female dog to play with or if no other dogs then a very active owner. He loves to lay on the couch at night with head in lap while watching tv. He sleeps in a crate at night by the bed and is very happy there.

Chaos has been in obedience classes with other dogs and is very well behaved while they are all on lead and working. He has not graduated to off lead around other yet. He knows some French and English commands.

Kahula is an energetic, young girl who would love to have another young dog to play with in her new home.

Kahula is estimated to be 2 years old, spayed, fully vetted, and heartworm negative. She is good with kids who are familiar with dogs and likes to "dance" with the kids. She doesn't mean to be rough; she just likes attention so she jumps up on them.

Kahula is good with dogs, including young, energetic dogs, and she disregards older dogs that want to be left alone. She has not been seen around cats at this time. She does well in the house with the exception of typical young dog issues, such as chewing on flip flops and checking for items within reach on the counters.

Kahula is housebroken and likes to lay on the couch and bed with her humans. She does well in the yard and does not appear to have much of a ball drive at this time. She needs work walking on a leash but is learning to not pull. Kahula likes treats and will sit and wait patiently for them.

Sweet Mia has a soft heart an incredible sense of joy.

She did not know "how to dog" when she came into foster care, but like any Malinois, she is a fast learner. It didn't take long for her to discover that it is wonderful to cuddle on the couch with her person. Now, she is an expert at giving and receiving love, and "has eyes that will melt your heart." Her fosters especially like that she will lean in when she is sharing the couch with you, and put her arm around you. If you're looking for a loyal companion, this girl is for you.

Her fosters are very proud of Mia. She has grown up so much since she came to them. "She has grown by leaps and bounds from where she was." Mia has grown out of her fear of storms and touch, and "only gets better and better." She is "goofy" and loves her orange ball. You can see her joy when she races around the backyard with it. She has also discovered that she likes the finer things in life, like the people-bed. When her foster Mom tries to get her out of bed, Mia hides her head or covers her eyes with her paws— but the wagging tail undermines her invisibility trick.

Mia has good manners. She does not jump on people, she "just wants to be petted. She's excited to see you but not crazy." Mia is usually very quiet. She walks nicely on a leash, and is learning to recall using a long line. Her fosters have taught her basic obedience. She can be free in the house, and is non-destructive. She will ride in a kennel in the care, but doesn't need it in the house. She will respect a baby gate if you want to restrict some areas. In fact, kenneling in the home makes her anxious and it is suspected that she may have been used for breeding in the past.

This smart girl didn't have much socialization when she came into care. Her fosters say that she works hard "trying to figure out what we want" and "wants to please" her family. Her fosters are amazed by "the love this girl puts out" and how she "wants to blend in with you." She is learning about balls, obedience, and how to interact in a family. Now she just wants to be with her people.

Mia seems to have not had enough attention in the past, and is a sponge for attention. She would do best with a quiet, active family that has time to spend with her. She hates shouting and worries when other dogs get in trouble. She shuts down with harsh correction, so a gentle home and hand are best. She doesn't know about children, but her fosters think she would learn to live with school age and older children. They don't recommend very young children.

Because Mia didn't have enough exposure to the world when she was younger, she is still learning. She follows her person's cues when she goes to town, and lets strangers greet her after polite introductions. In her current foster home, she and the two male dogs play gently, mouthing, rolling over, and playing foot games. She doesn't get along with the female. She might be okay with a submissive male, but can be jealous when she has to share her person. If she had her choice, Mia would probably prefer to have all the love and toys to herself.

Mia has very strong ball drive, and also a strong prey drive. Cats are not recommended, and any squirrels had better watch out! Her foster says that "she definitely has a nose." She might do very well with nosework or barnhunt activities, but probably doesn't have the personality fit for a sport home. She also really loves treats, and is working to shed a few pounds. She loves to walk and "would bond quickly with a loving family." Her favorite toy is her orange ball, but she also loves chuck-its, Kongs, and rope tugs. You should see that classic Malinois focus snap into place when the ball is in the air!

Mia's foster family is touched by how incredibly loving this girl is. They say that she is ready for her forever family. Mia continues to show more personality all the time. They want her to find her people so that she can spend her adult life loving on her people.

Rebel 3 yr old spayed female - KS

Fee: $350
Malinois Foster Rebel - 21KB
Malinois Foster Rebel - 22KB
Malinois Foster Rebel - 27KB

Rebel began in humble surroundings, in a 10 x 10 plain enclosure. She didn't get much interaction or socialization,

so when she was retired after five litters, she suddenly found herself in a much larger world. Luckily, this lady has brains and beauty, so the future looks bright. She is learning about toys, working on manners, and learning to win the pets and praise of strangers. She may be shy, but she loves people.

Her agent, Ms. Pursley, describes her as a "six month old puppy in a three year old body." She is helping Rebel with her social polish. Rebel's dance moves are still a cross between football and breakdancing. She also uses her mouth like a hand to guide you or get your attention, so children 14 or older would be best. She will do anything for attention, and loves to lie in your lap belly up, or curl up behind your chair. Rebel's agent says that Rebel has personality for days. "Her facial expressions are gold, but her body language is horribly honest." That may not work for Hollywood, but it could be perfect for your home.

Rebel is working on her talent set. She loves puzzle toys that dispense treats, and can carry a pack on walks. She can destuff a toy in 5 seconds, and smiles with pride when she is done. "She is incredibly comical," says Ms. Pursley. Like any socialite, Rebel has esprit du soirée— and she throws mini parties where she connects dots by doing zoomies and loving on her person. Rebel is learning to play fetch, and might do well as a rally or obedience dog. Agility might be overwhelming for her sweet, shy nature.

Her agent feels that this diamond-in-the-rough would do best in a "strong home that will appreciate her as much as she would appreciate them. There is nothing she wouldn't do." Rebel wants to please and be loved. She will bond tightly to her family. "She's looking for a way in, she wants to fall in love." She would like to be an only dog, at least at first. She was polite when she met with neutral male dogs out in public, but might be jealous if she had to share at home.

Rebel gets very anxious in the car and is startled by traffic out on the street, but she is learning. An enclosed kennel makes car rides easier, and she does her best to cooperate with her person. Rebel doesn't have any aggression, even at a noisy dock diving show or when she is scared. However, because of her past life, she doesn't do well in pens. She would like best to have an in-home sitter when her person has to travel. Rebel also doesn't do cats... she has seen too many movies where the evil genius was a cat person.

Rebel has mastered the basics of leash walking, heel, sit, down, and wait. She wowed her fans at Dock Diving with a smooth red carpet debut. She needs more socialization to build her confidence, and would benefit from a trainer before she is ready to be an A-list star, but she is on her way. With structure, patience, and love, this girl will be a gem. Her agent says that "Her mind is always moving and she greatly likes learning tasks. She's a remarkable little thing."

Rebel says that she has heard that Ms. Monroe sang that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but that she prefers the quote that, "Anyone who thinks that diamonds are a girl's best friend has never had a dog." Ms. Pursley is certain that this girl is a treasure, and will shine for the right home.
